Abstract:

BMI View: Weak economic growth will lead Japan s metals industry to see minimal growth to ----. The country s construction and infrastructure industries will see declining growth by late----- after recent expansion, while automotive production will be modest over the coming years. ...However, recent monetary loosening may boost construction in the shorter term through subdued interest rates, and a weaker yen should support metal exports.

Furthermore, we expect global steel prices to remain subdued in ---- on the back of continued overcapacity, putting pressure on steel producers. ...Furthermore, we expect global steel prices to remain subdued in ---- on the back of continued overcapacity, putting pressure on steel producers.

Nevertheless, the country will remain a global leader in production to ---- given its size and high level of development. ...We expect total crude steel output to reach nearly ---mnt (million tonnes) by ----. Despite subdued steel prices and a global glut of metal, market reports suggest Japanese steelmakers will boost output to grow exports, rather than cut output and face higher fixed costs. A depreciating yen in ---- should better enable Japanese steelmakers to capture foreign market share. ...Despite subdued steel prices and a global glut of metal, market reports suggest Japanese steelmakers will boost output to grow exports, rather than cut output and face higher fixed costs.
